Hospice services are designed to provide a caring environment for the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of the terminally ill. Care can be provided for the patient in his or her home, nursing facility or a foster care home without repeated hospital stays.
The goal of Bluebonnet Home Health & Hospice personnel is symptom management and pain control. Hope of remission or cure is never abandoned but the focus is on providing palliative (comfort) care not curative care.
Our services allow patients to retain their dignity, while realizing quality is more important than quantity in their remaining days.
Any person with a terminal illness (life expectancy of approximately six months or less if the disease takes its normal course) is eligible for Hospice care.
The patient, family and physician must understand and agree to the principles of hospice. These principles advocate symptom control and quality of life for the patient and family.
